Power Beyond Force: A New Strategic Vision for America

October 30, 2014

The inaugural Distinguished Practitioners Series was presented by Gen. Wesley K. Clark U.S. Army (ret.) before a group of students and invited guests on the Georgetown campus. General Clark discussed topics from his new book, Don’t Wait For the Next War: A Strategy for American Growth and Global Leadership.

As America emerges from more than a ­decade of costly wars, Clark proposed a new strategic vision to address five persistent, ­interrelated, international challenges—­terrorism, cybersecurity, financial instability, the rise of China and global climate change. This event was presented by the Institute in cooperation with the Center for Security Studies.
